  8. Great job!

    Posted by Janice on 6th May 2014

    There is usually "room for improvement" in everything; however, I found this course to be well organized, concise, informational and don't have any suggestions for improvements. It has met my needs completely and I am looking forward to participating in all the Modules available.

  9. Your trainings are always excellent

    Posted by Briana on 5th May 2014

    Your trainings are always excellent, thank you. The voice accompanying the text has a much better tone than past trainings. The live chat is excellent and so fast!

  10. Very helpful

    Posted by Julie on 29th Apr 2014

    All of the courses were helpful and taught me new things. I would like to apply the health and nutrition ideas mentioned in your trainings, to my current childcare program. I would like to plan more activities that involve the children practicing their counting and measuring by helping me prepare their snacks and meals.

  11. Thank you

    Posted by Maria on 17th Apr 2014

  12. I really enjoyed Module 1

    Posted by Kayla on 11th Apr 2014

    The health and safety of childern is a very valueable subject matter. I can use the information that I learned in this module in a practal way each day. For instance, I used the suggested techniques in a classroom setting to eduacte childern on the dangers of fire. I also spoke with families about the importance of establoishing a fire safely plan in thier homes.

  13. Thanks!

    Posted by Randi on 9th Apr 2014

    The trainer did an excellent job at providing me with the information I need to succeed in childcare. I will take all the training information I learned in these Modules and apply it to my everyday routine so that I can assure that each and every child in my care as well as the facility is safe.

  16. Good Training

    Posted by Kristal on 24th Mar 2014

    I liked the knowledge assessment before each section. The guy reading and the pictures were helpful.

  17. The training is repetitive in a good way.

    Posted by Melissa on 5th Mar 2014

    I enjoy online learning and being able to learn at my own pace which is very helpful with a busy family and daycare.

  18. Affordable and Convenient

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Mar 2014

    Just what I needed! The area that we live in makes it hard to make it to those free trainings, but this is both affordable and convenient for me and my family. I can do it at my own pace.

  19. Good training courses

    Posted by Lizzy on 21st Feb 2014

    I like how detailed the training courses were. they were defined very well and examples were given for further understanding. I also like how they highlighted some uncommon words and gave their definition to be able to thoroughly understand the discussion.

  20. Good information

    Posted by Amy on 18th Feb 2014

    I feel I have the knowledge needed to be aware of signs of abuse. I know first aid, security procedures and safety concern for children in centers. I will use the nutrition information to help design a snack program that reflects the nutritional guidelines.
